Dangar Falls Reserve plan of management is open for comment
THE revised draft plan of management document for Dangar Falls Reserve is now on public display.
Dangar Falls at North Dorrigo is used as a place of passive recreation for picnicking, swimming, fishing, bushwalking, bird watching, relaxation and photography.
The reserve contains a number of key scenic landmark features including the falls, Bielsdown River, stands of Antarctic Beech and Port Jackson Cyprus and rural vistas.
Open parkland has a small number of facilities such as a raised boardwalk, viewing platforms, seating, picnic tables, electric barbeque, shelter, toilet block, rubbish bins, children's play equipment, carpark and labyrinth.
A revised draft plan provides a contemporary blueprint for future management and improvements to the reserve area.
The main elements are to enhance the environmental management and tourism values of the reserve.
Proposed improvements include a program to protect native vegetation values and control weeds, and extensive upgrades to the reserve access network, public facilities, recreation and picnic areas, car parking and interpretive signage.
The draft plan may be viewed during normal business hours at the Grafton Crown Lands office, Bellingen Shire's administration office, Dorrigo Visitor Information Centre or downloaded from www.bellingen.nsw.gov.au or www.crownland.nsw.gov.au
